If you don't read a newspaper you are uniformed....if you do read a newspaper you are misinformed

The quality of the evidence for dietary advice given in UK national newspapers is poor. Of 111 dietary health claims identified, 72% and 68% (assessed by WCRF and SIGN criteria respectively) had levels of evidence lower than the convincing or probable categories that are recommended for dietary health claims. Conclusions: Misreporting of dietary advice by UK newspapers is widespread and may contribute to public misconceptions about food and health.

The concern is that inaccurate or incorrect press reports create public opinion that leads to misguided polical action.
